Thank you to all the parents and carers that completed the questionnaires, answering a range of questions about the school, about you and your children’s experience of Lane End. A very big thank you for the many of you that spend time giving us lots of extra detailed and information too, at the end of the questions on the survey. These are REALLY useful, and really help us to direct and make changes—so we can make sure Lane End Primary School is the very best it can be.
We have now collated up and analysed all the question responses, and have put these together into a booklet for you to read.
The staff team were so pleased at your overwhelmingly positive responses, and will continue to work hard to keep our school and school community a place that you and your child are happy to be a part of.
What do we do next?
We will be sharing the results with the Governing Body, and planning to ways in which we can improve. We will also be inviting groups of parents to join us for longer chats (over a cuppa and biscuits!) so that you can help us with your thoughts, feelings, ideas and suggestions about a range of things that you feel we can improve upon.
Please look out for posters asking for your help with this, or Mrs Sammon, or Miss Sadler asking you in the playground on a morning.
A few parents had very specific points they wanted to make—and we have met with these parents, to see what we can do together to answer these questions, meet any need or solve any problems.
If you feel you would like to talk to any member of staff, about any query, question or issue, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can either catch the member of staff at the classroom doors, or if this is tricky, or more time is needed, please ring the school office, and Mrs Kirkpatrick or Mrs Askham will get a message to the person you want to speak to you.
The member of staff will try to contact you as soon as they can—sometimes a short chat is all you need, which can be arranged quickly, at other times you might want an appointment to talk. Please be assured we will try to get in touch as soon as we can, and try to make a meeting time that suits you, and that the member of staff can make.
Thank you for all your feedback and working together we will make Lane End the best school it can be—so that all our children can ‘Learn, Believe, Aspire and Achieve!’
“Lane End really sent out all the expectations they want from all children, behaviour and reaching their potential, and manners and respect. Learning tasks and homework is at an impressive level and the home-school relationship is fantastic. What is great is being able to send photos and videos to record progress and experiences and have time to chat to teachers about it. Praising children at the achievement assembly so each child can congratulate each other, as a class, and in their own achievements”
